For 2014, Blue Note — along with Universal Music Enterprises — is launching a major 75th Anniversary Vinyl Initiative that is dedicated to the proposition that Blue Note's catalog should be readily available at a low cost - featuring high quality pressings and authentic reproductions of Blue Note's iconic packaging.

"Kenny Drew's seventh recording as a leader is significant for many reasons, not the least of which that it is one of the finest Blue Note hard bop statements in either of their catalogs. Teamed with rising young star, trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, and the wonderful tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley fresh off stints with Donald Byrd and Art Blakey, Drew is joining the ranks of the premier mainstream jazz pianists just prior to moving permanently to Europe. He's a complementary piece of the puzzle as a player, but stirs the drink as the composer of all of these very fine hard bop vehicles. Bassist Sam Jones and especially drummer Louis Hayes contribute mightily to the beats that keep Hubbard and Mobley flying on this recording, whose energy runs contrary to the more subtle, suggestive title." — AllMusic.com
